Locavore Summer 2024 - Honey and Elderflower Wheat Beer made using heather honey from our friends at OpenHive

Locavore Summer 2024

The Locavore Project epitomises the core philosophy that Wicklow Wolf was founded upon, provenance and pride. It allows us to honour the landscape of Wicklow, our home and celebrate it with small batch, local, experimental beers. Locavore Summer 2024 is a honey and elderflower wheat beer brewed with heather honey supplied by our friends at OpenHive and foraged elderflower from near the Hop Farm. The bees worked hard in the Wicklow mountains to gather the nectar needed to make beautiful heather honey which adds a unique characteristic to this beer, complimented well by the freshly foraged elderflower. Enjoy!

Locavore Spring 2024

Introducing Locavore Spring 2024, the first seasonal Locavore Project release of 2024 and our 21st release in the series. Locavore Spring 2024 is a Barrel Aged Farmhouse Ale aged for 16 months in Chardonnay barrels on our hop farm in the Wicklow Mountains. Conditioned with wild yeasts and carefully monitored by the watchful eyes of our brewing team, the beer was allowed to slowly mature over time to give a magnificent depth of complex flavours. The result? A wild, sour farmhouse ale which champions the wild yeasts of the Wicklow Wolf Hop Farm and the Wicklow Terroir.
